In acknowledgement of their carbon footprint, the quintet have committed to paying $200 per ton for carbon dioxide mitigation from the tour.

Guitarist Stone Gossard says, "We are proud of our prior efforts to mitigate our inevitable carbon footprint from touring over the past 20 years but the time to multiply that effort is clearly right now. By committing to this aggressive pricing, we hope to equally amplify our efforts and gather partners who share our urgency to make the investments and innovations required to move our world to a more conscious, carbon balanced economy."
